Week 27

I'm sitting on my friend Leah's couch writing this post in HOUSTON, TEXAS!!! :-) Jason and I flew in yesterday and I am glad to say that the flight itself went without issue although I can't say the same for the airport before we left... but we don't have to get into how I left Jason's wallet on the bus in Stavanger and we thankfully got it back in tact 30 min before our flight departed... Man this pregnesia is killing me!

Anyway, we made it safe and sound and with minimal jet lag today (I figure waking up at 6:30 am isn't too bad for minor jet lag.) We have a full day ahead of us starting with me getting my hair and nails done followed by Jason's birthday celebration at the race track and dinner with family tonight.

How far along: 27 weeks, 4 days

Size of Baby S: 14.5 in, 2 lbs

Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Head of cauliflower

Total weight gain: 12 lbs

Sleep: Good. There have been a couple times I've woken up and haven't been able to fall back asleep (highly unusual for me) but fortunately they've all been close to when it was time to get up anyway.

Movement: Yes!

Unglamorous body changes: Nothing really comes to mind. Maybe I should ask Jason, haha.

Maternity Clothes? . Yes. Finally got out the shirts this week too. :-)

Showing: Yes, but the airlines still didn't seem to care or want to see the doctors note that I made sure to get just in case they ask (its recommended over 28 weeks to have the note so maybe I will get asked on the way back after I've ballooned in size from all the Houston foods, hehe)

Food cravings: Nothing really, but I am excited for chick fil a this morning and fogo de chao tonight!!

What I miss: Mojito. Going to Mexico tomorrow and seeing all those tropical drinks will make me a little sad as I sip my virgin piña colada.

Anything making you queasy: Nope.

Strange experiences: Someone touched my belly for the first time this week. It was just slightly and I didn't care but it did make me realize "hey, I'm actually showing and this is probably going to happen a lot more at my showers and church these next two weeks."

Milestones: Baby Girl is sleeping and waking at regular intervals. She's also opening/closing her eyes and sucking her fingers (or feet, weirdo). Her brain is very active now and it's possible to start feeling tiny rhythmic movements from her getting hiccups.

Best moment this week: Grounding Baby Girl. I kid, I kid. Sort of. We tried to get pictures again this week but unfortunately she decided sticking her foot in her face was comfortable and the best she would give us. Thank you Baby Girl for giving is amazing pictures if your appendages!!! Grrrr.

Looking forward to: Mexico! We leave tomorrow and have maternity pictures confirmed for Monday. Then we come back to Houston and get to see our family and friends!
